CCS Feedback (CCS)--

Dear Mr. Ravi Philemon,
Thank you for bringing this matter to our attention.
2. CCS does not comment on individual cases because every CCS’ determination or finding is possible only after a thorough investigation of the detailed circumstances of each case. Neither does it comment on whether it is investigating a case. Having said that, CCS reiterates that price-fixing among businesses is illegal and opens them up to investigations and possible financial penalties under the Competition Act. Businesses are, however, free to determine their own prices independently. Trade or industry associations should not become the vehicle to facilitate price collusion or price-fixing.
3. CCS advises businesses and associations to familiarise themselves with the Competition Act which sets out the types of behaviour that are prohibited because they are considered to be anti -competitive. Any body or person who wants to know whether a specific behaviour is considered anti -competitive should seek legal advice, or file a notification for guidance or decision with CCS.
